On April 8, 2023, Albuquerque Community Safety (ACS) held a groundbreaking ceremony at its future home at Kathryn and San Mateo. 

“This is a landmark investment in public safety and alternative response right in the heart of the International District,” said Mayor Tim Keller. “ACS is making a real difference for people every day in Albuquerque, and the official headquarters will be a place for the department to grow its capacity and deepen its connection with the community.”

Following the ceremony, a community celebration was held at the Adjoining International District Harvest Market. The market brought together community members, community leaders, and other stakeholders, who browsed local vendors and grabbed some lunch at a food truck. Explora also offered an activity for children.
